Mayor Emanuel welcomes 100 graffiti artists to Englewood for weekend art event
WEST ENGLEWOOD — Graffiti artists from the U.S. and abroad brought ladders, brushes and gallons of spray paint to the neighborhood last weekend in an art effort dubbed “Meeting of Styles.”
Mayor Rahm Emanuel dropped by for a look Saturday afternoon as the artists painted a viaduct along 59th Street between Damen and Western avenues.
Emanuel, who said he learned of the effort in a DNAinfo story, said he wanted to see the creative magic up close.
